Schlafly founded the Eagle Forum in 1972, a pro-family conservative group focusing heavily on social issues — it has about 80,000 members and, as of this week, Schlafly was still president.
“Phyllis Schlafly spent an astounding 70 years in public service of her fellow Americans,” said the Eagle Forum in a statement. “Her focus from her earliest days until her final ones was protecting the family, which she understood as the building block of life. She recognized America as the greatest political embodiment of those values. From military superiority and defense to immigration and trade; from unborn life to the nuclear family and parenthood, Phyllis Schlafly was a courageous and articulate voice for common sense and traditional values.”
She fought her own Eagle Forum board on her support for Trump.
Just one month after she endorsed Donald Trump for president, conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly says she is facing down an attempt to oust her from Eagle Forum, the grass-roots organization she founded 44 years ago.
“At 2 p.m. today, six directors of Eagle Forum met in an improper, unprecedented telephone meeting,” Schlafly said in a curious and specific statement sent to reporters Monday evening. “I objected to the meeting and at 2:11pm, I was muted from the call. The meeting was invalid under the bylaws but the attendees purported to pass several motions to wrest control of the organization from me. They are attempting to seize access to our bank accounts, to terminate employees, and to install members of their own Gang of 6 to control the bank accounts and all of Eagle Forum.”
They questioned her sanity due to her age, sadly she wasn’t the only person who has fought family members over their support for Trump this election cycle. So many know so much that they believe so strongly they will force it on you even if it means demeaning your life lived. Many younger family members of what Rush Limbaugh calls our oldsters have questioned their parents ability to discern their patriotism. Yet like Phyliss they have stood tall and followed their own intelligent thought and not the emotional distress of their younger family members. She will be missed, she was one tough broad, if I can be half the conservative warrior she was my life will have been well lived.
May the Lord open to the faithful departed the gates of paradise so that they may return to that home where there is no more death, but everlasting joy.
